I"m having trouble with this for some reason. even though I'm checking off all the boxes and have the right folder selected it's not removing the apps. It's really weird. It says I have the same space available before and after I hit the shrink button and when I load the OS it says that I have 39MB available and none of the apps like facebook or the instant messengers (except BBM) are loaded and none of my 3rd party apps are installed yet. Any ideas here? I'm stumped!
yes. I've tried it on three differant OS versions including .148 from Verizon. I'm using Vista. would that make a difference?
So let me see if I understand
You are downloading a OS to your PC and installing then running shrink and selecting the OS folder you want to install (in shrink). Then choosing your options you want to remove, then clicking launch loader and then ..
Does it install the New OS without removing any of the options?
Or are you not installing a OS and just trying to use shrink to gain memory?
also - for .148 (for example) your Browse box (if you went that route, should read: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9530-v188.8.131.52_P184.108.40.206 - which you seem to have down or the .exe itself has to be in that folder with the checkbox underneath Browse selected

Glad to be of service
V3.1 - Fixes to Select All button, Added Default Themes shrink option for 4.5 (4.7 can't remove the default theme), Changed a few looks, Removed some Redundant code
Havent seen this posted, have you thought bout making one for the Tour OS? Or this is universal to all OS's?
Also, if there are any suggestions, post away!
I have been looking into an AutoUpdate feature, but it seems a bit advanced (or the one I tried didn`t work properly rather :P)

hate to bump an old topic
here's a screenshot of the newest Shrink + its proposed change log (most of it is complete, finishing touches/fixes required aswell as adding Gemini/Bold backgrounds, videos, etc. removal)
Coming to a interweb near you (could always follow me on twitter to be informed of its release)...
Very nice Lyr :35: thanks for making a great app that much better
